Accessibility Comments

Fully accessible, some of the buton labels are a bit strange but its fairly obvious what they do. Sometimes it can be difficult swiping between pages in the app, as although VoiceOver can detect there are multiple pages swiping up and down on text where it says page 1 of 2 for example doesn't work. 3 finger swipes to the right and left usually work for moving between pages, though sometimes you have to flick a bit on the screen and try again if the 3 finger swipe doesn't work.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.


There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Other Comments

The app has information for credit cards and bank accounts stored on different pages, which can be accessed with 3 finger swipes as noted in the accessibility comments though these sometimes don't work. These pages are different to the tabs along the bottom of the screen which take you to other parts of the app.
